Ethanol Days of Summer Free Fuel Contest

Free Fuel Giveaway

From Memorial Day through Labor Day, the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) offers free fuel to participants for reporting prices of E15 and E85 as part of its annual Ethanol Days of Summer Free Fuel Contest.  


As our country is experiencing record fuel prices, everyone is looking for a break at the pump. Ethanol has been providing savings for years, but even more so this summer as availability of E15 and E85 grows. To further highlight those savings and educate U.S. drivers on ethanol’s value, this year’s contest will be combined with RFA’s Pump up the Savings Challenge to allow consumers more ways to win. Each week RFA will award $250 in free fuel.


There are two ways to enter the contests and win:

Include station name, city, and state. Tag @EthanolRFA and include the hashtags: #ethanol #E15 #E85 and #fuelprices (unless those words are already mentioned).


Contestants will be entered into a random weekly drawing for a pre-paid credit card to be used for fuel purchases.
